jumping spider

Learn fascinating life stories and identification tips about our most important invertebrate predators: spiders. We’ll venture outside for part of the day, learning how to discover and identify some of our amazing local arachno-fauna. Be prepared for the weather. We’ll find outdoor “web-sites,” but also many free-ranging spiders that hunt like cats, wolves or eight-legged anglers. Discover first-hand why most insects are arachnophobic, and how we can (and should) help our local spider population.

Guest Instructors: Dan Schneider and John Reaume


Early Bird Fee: $80 by Sept. 19

Regular Fee: $90

Note: If we don’t have enough registrations by the early bird deadline the course may be cancelled. Maximum 18 adults.
